. >>> this morning, my question, are you ready for some football? plus, i've got more to say about education and a reminder about the long, ugly history of voter suppression. first, how far will republicans really go to block the ballot box? >>> good morning. i'm melissa harris-perry. we have spent the last few weeks telling you about the suppress sieve voter laws hastily passed by republican-led state legislatures claiming to be defending democracy against the threat of voter fraud. we have also told you that the laws themselves are the real threat to our democracy, because they would by design disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters. well, on thursday, republicans finally found evidence that the myth of voter fraud is very real and they found it right in their own party. investigators in six florida counties have opened a criminal inquiry into hundreds of cases of suspected voter fraud committed by a gop consulting firm. the republican national committee hired to register republican voters for the november 6th election. the fraud accusations against the firm strategic allied consult
such as employment, education, homeownership and business ownership. what do you make of that? and as governor, what would you do to address it? >> i think it's all about jobs. we need more people getting taxpayers a number of people living off the government. you know, my wife and i have given so much back to the st. louis city schools at roosevelt high school, for the past six years we've been knee-deep in the problem center city. and by the way, we 50,000 kids now with normandie going the other way and not accredited schools, 50,000. philip busch stadium standing room only. we need more people employed in the state. we need more opportunity, we need more dreams to be fulfilled and we are simply languishing at the bottom of the barrel almost every economic category. you know, a lot of education is leadership and it starts at the top. i think there's well-intentioned people. were starting to show signs of progress and it was. we been in there. we've been in the trenches. for six years we've been trying to find a solution to the problems. kansas city, we can help getting it going from the ideas we h
at the time so close to an election. we are hoping for a favorable ruling. we are also on the ground educating people on how to get their ideas as best as they can. the lines at the penndot are two, three, four hours long. disabled people are unable to get the new form of i.d. we hope that judge simpson rules favorably and strikes down this law. >> brenton, you have been all over this from the beginning. i have been following your stories, today in voter suppression. when i hear that the penndot offices are giving out all of this bad information, i'm assuming they are not part of some grand conspiracy. they are just front line workers that can't keep up with the rules. is that right? what are the real challenges to making this at all fair? >> well, consider when the common wealth court hearing started on tuesday. the latest iteration of rules had come down to the penndot workers literally that morning. there was testimony in court that at 7:45, that morning, that a memo went out to the penndot workers telling them, oh, so here are these new rules and policy changes. so there has been plenty of

investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >> schieffer: and we're back now with our panel, larry sabato. i want to come back to you. how important do you think this debate is going to be, this first one? >> it's critical to mitt romney. he really does have to show his stuff there, and he has to-- he has to change his emage. he has the image of a kru club republican. he has to go after president obama in a coherent way with a real message. but, you know, history tells me, bob, that generally speaking, the challenger does gain from the first debate. it will be a surprise if he doesn't gain. and he very much needs to. he needs to get some momentum. based on history, i would say the odds favor mitt romney in the first debate. >> schieffer: let me ask you about your home state, virginia. your center is headquartered at u.v.a. what's happening there? is this going to come down to virginia? a lot of people think it might. >> well, it could. obviously, it would have to be very close to
the quality of education. >> when you look at the budgets, they're talking about slashing our investment in education. >> their conclusion is the greatest determiner of the success of a school system was the quality of the teacher. >> i get frustrated when i wear teacher bashing. >> you were lucky enough to attend cran brooke. >> i was delighted to have a terrific education. >> we pay taxes so kids who are going to public schools can have good teachers and can succeed. >> let's get to our pnler panan. we're joined by thomas frank, us a latest book is out in paper book. we're also joined by the managing editor of thegrio.com joy ann reid. mitt romney talked about education and it reminded me of that time when he went to an inner city school not far from where you were in philadelphia and he lectured teachers about class size citing mckenzie research. your response to what he said? >> i don't know if i have a response for that. >> try not to use an expletive if you can. >> their overwhelming research says the opposite of what mitt romney is saying. the schools that fare the best are the sc
noncollege whites. 27% were college-educated whites and 12% were minorities. since then, the minorities doubled to 26%. the noncollege whites all the way down to 39%. you take reagan's share of the vote in 1984 among noncollege whites and protect them in the 2008 election, the other thing that changed is the democrats in the first decades after world war ii, come about again change in the 60s and 70s. seventys and 80s. college and noncollege, today in polling, it is nine or 10. i would argue that obama wins and once it gets done, it produces an environment in which all the numbers we are talking about, "a-team" 40. as you want, you want 80% of nonwhite voters. those voters represent the 20 present as they did last time. the internal composition of the white vote is changing in a way that makes it more accessible for him to get there. to me coming have to look not only at education but gender. it basically creates four quadrants. if you look at 2008, noncollege white man. a noncollege white women, he will drop. the fourth quadrant was the college-educated white women. in all polling, inc
they are enthusiastic. he has been emphasizing a lot of the issues on things like medicare, cuts to education, tax cuts to the rich. he has been very forceful about contrasting his views on things. they would do all sorts of things. they had some success with it. the way he has tried to paint romney as an out of touch private equity guy who would not know a white working class person it became up and bit them and the nose. romney needed to reach the huge number to be competitive. i think the obama team realized that there are some very opposite things about romney. i think this has been successful. we cannot leave this without saying a word about republican performance. if they had sat down and try to optimize the things they might say that may tick off the democratic party and raise concern, and it probably could not have done much better. way theflects the republica republican capture the elements that are far away from the media voter. social and economic issues, the whole business of paul ryan and embracing this kind of ayn rand approach to american society and economics. it is far away from the po
% according to the u.s. department of education. what specific policy to propose as the most efficient solution to the declining affordability of higher education? >> i will tell you it is not to eliminate the department of education. as i just indicated, what we did is we took the middleman out of the student loans and took the cup they were making with no risk, because the federal government was backing those loans, and we took the money and increase the amount of the pell grant, which allows more kids to go to college. this is the land of opportunity. this is where we believe anyone can do anything and personal freedom is very important, but to get to the next rung and the latter, there is a lot of families that cannot get their kids to college. i do not want to shut that door for them. it is important i think that we keep the pell grants and place. i think we also have to pay attention to student tuition. i think it is bad that we are not investing more in higher education at the state and local level. unlike many others, i think we should raise the cigarette tax. i am embarrassed

[applause] let's take a look at how much they value the middle-class. they have already passed one in the house of representatives, the one embraced by governor romney. look at what it has done. i care about the middle class but i will cut 90 million people -- 19 million people off of medicare. a lot of people say, that is all poor folks. a million of those people are seniors. in fact majority had to sell -- the vast majority of folks had to sell everything they have and whatever savings they had to get into a nursing home. the only reason they are able to get into a nursing home is because of something called the dueled eligible. the get both medicare and
, a viewer wants a little bit more from you on education. they write: i agree r agree with some of governor johnson's point but the view of education is backwards. do you want to clarify your education policy? >> guest: well, as governor of new mexico, i was more outspoken than any governor in the country regarding school choice. i really believe that to reform education we need bring competition to public education. that said, what's the best thing that the federal got could do to improve education in this country? well, i maintain it would be to abolish the federal department of education, established in 1979 under jimmy carter, there is anything from 1979 to suggest that the department of education has been value-add? i would argue know. the federal government gives each state 11 cents out of every cool that the state spends but they tell you have to do a, b, c, and d, and here's 11 cents, and when to accomplish a, b, c, and d, it costs 16 cents. so nobody really recognizes it costs money to take federal money. just get the federal department over education out of education. just get the

we send more tax dollars to sacramento, they'll cut education again. here's a new approach. prop thirty-eight sends billions in new education dollars straight to our local schools, and guarantees the politicians can't touch it. thirty-eight will restore the education cuts from sacramento. so remember this number. thirty-eight. . >>> a campaign with a powerful message to fight breast cancer. 30 people took part in the immediate impact breast cancer walk. the idea began as a response to the controversy over the komen race for the cure. they decided to fund raise for local groups. they raised $93,000. >>> more than 30 million americans suffer from migraine headaches and a third of them standard treatment doesn't help and now one doctor is offering a new report. how his patients swear by it. >> reporter: she loves to spend time with her kids. on this day reading. >> he was sent to bed without eating anything. >> you wouldn't do that, would you? >> no. >>> for years it was no laughing matter. intinsely, painful chronic headaches -- intensely, pain full chronic headaches. >> i would tr

medicare, cuts to education and tax cuts to the rich, he's been very forceful about contrasting his views on things with what he says are the views to the other side which are sort of embracing a host of unpopular positions to these constituencies he's mobilizing the debates and had success with it and police tried to paint romney as an out of touch equity guide working-class person of the team that it's been fairly successful strategy particularly but only with the base but white working-class voters to be competitive in this election the obama team realized correctly there is a very off-putting thing about romney which is embodied in the republican party these days, but romney doesn't particularly without saying a word of the republican performance. it has been designed to optimize the things they might say that what really ticked off the base for the democratic party and raise concerns among independent voters. they probably couldn't have done much better captured by the elements that are far away by the level of conservatism and social issues, paul business of corrupting paul ryan and
. that is 100% incorrect. people need to educate themselves on how congress works. he had 60 votes until august when tent kennedy died. -- ted kennedy. then he had 59. a special election seat was triggered, the election with scott brown, that gave the republicans 41. then we lost senator byrd. that was another vote that we lost. so the president only had a senate for about eight months. in that eight months he was dealing with the worst recession since the great depression. so people need to educate themselves and stop going with these party lines of the democrats controlled congress two years and so on. there's only so much you can do. host: thanks for calling. this on twitter -- on facebook -- gary johnson will be on this program to take your calls in about an hour, 8:30 eastern time. the last call from texas reminds us of the interview with ross belprospero. -- with ross perot. richard spoke with him down in plano, texas. the headline, the u.s. is headed for disaster. the full interview with richard wolfe of "usa today" talking with perot, 9:00 p.m. eastern time.
